call them up to complain that there is no restocking fee since the stock never left and was never pulled.Good news: Refund is officially in process.
Bad news: Jegs wants to charge me a $100 restocking fee. By principal this is grade A bullshit. IT WAS NEVER STOCKED TO BEGIN WITH! THAT'S WHY WE'RE HERE!! FFS the part was never even built!
Lol hopefully the gear ratios work in your favor! This has certainly been a roller coaster. Hopefully by the time I'm done and have this all documented, it will be much easier for anybody to do the conversion.Hearing about all of the issues you've had really made me make sure that whatever I ordered was in stock. So I pretty much picked the version of the transmission I did just because it was in stock and would ship right away
Hell yeah! Their oddball stuff and piping are my favorites. Most of the hot side of my turbo kit is made from speedway bends. They seem to be a good company too. Summit is still my go-to though. I've ordered stuff on from late at night and gotten it the next day using their free standard shipping. lol Their customer service and return policies are the best I've seen in any online store.Speedway ftw! They are an hour from me and have bailed me out many times.
That sucks. I saw that they came in all cardboard which shocked me. It probably needs a pallet.In for pictures of the shipping box. My first trans I received was packed very poorly and had a cracked section of the midplate because of it. I was going to just run it but since the dowel was there I went and returned it for a replacement.
Curious if they pack these things better than the T56's
Notice the input shaft sticking out the front:

Even the replacement they sent me wasn't shipped much better:
Idk about a T56, but my UPS tracker says that my package is 109lbs. I thought the TKX itself weighed more than that, but I guess I'll find out soon. I just shipped the Precision SLIC from my GN to NY in a Lowes moving box. It's only 42lbs and should be far less susceptible to damage. Yet, I still had that thing packed full of whatever the hell I could find that was cushiony and worthless. A mint condition Le Bra cover did a nice job.We'll shoot just putting a piece of quarter inch plywood at each end of the box with handle grab holes would probably increase the cost of the trans by like a hundred and fifty bucks....just in wood
When I worked at UPS we took overweight (>100lbs) orders of transmissions, whatever companies that were shipping were more adult than what I am seeing above. the boxes were like a super strong cardboard then something like expanding foam in plastic bags was put into the box with the transmission, sure you had to cut the foam out when it got to its destination but those things definitely GOT to their destination in one piece.Molded styrofoam or expandable packing foam is cheap AF. I don't understand why they wouldn't want to protect THEIR investment. I'm obviously not accepting a damaged part so it's on them. Then again,
